Public transport

Tram, bus, metro and train: the Brussels-Capital Region offers a complete public transport network. By using one or the other, by combining several of them or by adding a bicycle, you can be sure to get to your destination... And often much faster than by car!

The public transport network in Brussels is managed by four different companies:

  • the STIB (Société des Transports Intercommunaux de Bruxelles), which runs the Brussels tram, bus and metro network
  • SNCB/NMBS (Société Nationale des Chemins de fer Belges), whose rail network connects the Brussels stations: no less than 33 stops are served by train in Brussels
  • De Lijn (the Flemish public transport company) provides connections between Brussels and neighbouring towns and cities in Flanders, with numerous stops throughout Brussels
  • finally, the TEC (Transport En Commun en Wallonie) offers connections between Brussels and Wallonia
